Grew up in Oakland and Baltimore. Family of 10. 8 sisters and 2 brothers. Father was pastor of Good Samaritan Baptist Church. Everyone grew up singing or playing Gospel music. Won 6th grade talent show, singing "My Girl" by the Temptations. I've been hooked ever since. I've played in numerous venues and participated in several bands. I even had a group with Lenny Williams in Oakland. I grew up in neighborhood with recording artists such as Sly and the Family Stone, Tower of Power, Larry Graham, Edwin and Walter Hawkins (cousins of mine). Later I sang with the gospel choir, "Helen Stevens and the Voices of Christ". I was fortunate to meet and sing with James Cleveland, Isaac Douglas, The O'Neill Twins and Dorothy Norwood.
